Rain Pryor in her own story: Fried Chicken & Latkes

This is a hilarious and heart-wrenching story of growing up black and Jewish in a politically incorrect era. Her father was comic genius Richard Pryor, and her mother a Jewish astronomer. Discover how Pryor finds her identity in both worlds, and works to change ours.  Directed by Eve Brandstein.

More Courage

We all want more courage. This show explores stories of brave acts, small or large, that change lives and inspire us all. It also shares those moments when we just can’t seem to muster the courage to do the right thing.
